Fashion designers, actresses, lifelong best friends and entrepreneurs Mary Kate (MK) and Ashley
Olsen, who no longer go by The Olsen Twins, appeared on the Ellen show on Friday, 9/17/10.
Looking very fashionable in their own designs (MK is a cream colored top and black skirt and Ashley in a black top with white polka dots and black shirt) the two were also in sync with their long blonde tousled waves.

It seems even though they were dressed exactly alike, their hair was very similarly highlighted, low lighted and texturized. I must say their tresses looked very beachy and gorgeous against their skin and eyes.
Mary Kate And Ashley Dressed Ellen
I have to admit I was surprised to hear that Ellen love’s MK and Ashley’s clothes which she said she “wears all the time on the show.” Ellen also said “when I was campaigning to be on the cover of Oprah’s magazine, you all got in touch and wanted to dress me for the cover of O, which I was flattered by.” Obviously Ellen loves the clothes which she said were “so cool” and “so affordable.”
Ashley said “we have (the cover) framed in the office.” Ellen noted her cover is also framed in her office. Ashley said “we were so excited, we’re such big fans of you. It was just really exciting for us to make something for you.” Ellen said she wore “three different outfits for three different covers and all the clothes she wore” were from MK and Ashley’s collection.
Hanging Out Together All The Time
Ellen said “you two seem to hang out together all the time. Or you together as much as we think or do we just see photos. Are you all best friends?” MK said “yeah” and Ashley chimed in “probably more than everyone thinks.” MK said “we’re together every day probably from 9 am til 12 at night, sometimes later.” Ellen asked “but you don’t live together?” The Olsens said in unison “no”. Ellen asked “would you want to live together? Or would that be too much?”
MK said “well we;ve started thinking about it again” and Ashley added “even though it didn’t work out the first time. But maybe…..” MK “we thought our furniture would go really well together and our art.” Ashley “and our clothing and we did matching chairs just in case.” MK “yeah.”
Ellen said “I know you say you’re somewhat different but you kinda nod at the same time, you’re connected in such a way that you think of the same thing at the same time.” Ellen asked if they each know, when they’re apart, when the other is in trouble. Ashley said they do and Mary Kate explained “we’re mirror twins” and have a balancing act where one if good the other may not be good but they support and help each other and keep it balanced.
As she discussed their positive attitudes Ellen complimented them on being “scandal free” which she noted “is pretty rare in this business”.
Scandal Free Lives? Seriously?
Scandal free? Well compared to Ms. Lohan they are. But what about Ashley’s struggles with her eating disorder and other romantic entanglements and wild partying they have been spotted doing in New York? I’m not sure what Ellen was talking about but definitely they are less scandal ridden than some of their peers. Certainly Ashley has been less scandal ridden then MK.
It was interesting to hear that MK and Ashley derived their natural sense of style from their mother who they said taught them about the big sunglasses, layering and use of
scarves. I also was not aware that when they were younger they would take adult clothes and cut them down to fit them in their teen and pre-teen years. No wonder they were dabbling in fashion at such a young age.
Leave it to Ellen to have guests on her show that you think you know about and then find out lots of new insider info. Which is probably one of the reasons I’m still watching Ellen every day and haven’t missed a single show since the very beginning.
